"So beautifully written that the reading is a pleasure. . . . Chödrön's voice is gently humorous, always kind, and seemingly infinitely wise."— Los Angeles Times

This book has offered me the ability to learn how to sit with many difficult feelings that were unsafe to express growing up with loving kindness, just like I would have imagined a parent might do. Instead of allowing these feelings to push me into actions that are not in my best interest, I watch them come and go in meditation and have learned from Pema how to not get attached to any of them. Because they will surely change just like the weather.
The message is one that will begin to affect your daily life, especially if you are in a meditation practice. If you aren’t, it may encourage you to take up a practice in meditation and of lovin yourself fully.
